MAILBOX Alert is a smart device inside your mailbox that sends out an alert when your mailbox is opened. That alert is a one time message, either via email or text, or both. Optionally, this device can also send you pushbullet notifications. MAILBOX Alert is configured to use your WiFi. The setup takes a few minutes with a smart phone or a laptop. Once your MAILBOX Alert has been setup, a few details need to be specified in the Alerts Portal. They include your email address and phone number.
The Alerts Portal is a secure area of myspool.com for configuring settings such text message content and hours of operation. It is accessible to owners of MAILBOX Alert devices.
When setup has been completed, every time your mailbox is opened an an email will be sent to you. If configured, you will also get a text message. The MAILBOX Alert has been successfully tested at over 400 feet from WiFi router and through some walls.
The MAILBOX Alert comes in two versions. One is mounted outiside the mailbox.
And the other one is placed inside - only if your mailbox is made of plastic!
